Case Study: Placing Project Managers at a Large Telecommunications Company

January 2018

CaseStudyBlog: PM/BA

Apex has the experience and connections to provide staffing and consulting solutions to support the entire life-cycle of our clients’ IT projects. Since 2010, Apex has placed over 20,000 PMO professionals by leveraging the following:

  • A local recruiting team in each branch with recruiters that have received essential PMO technology training primarily focused on sourcing and screening PMO candidates
  • Support for each of our local recruiting teams with our PMO Practice Group, one of our 16 Skill Practice Groups focused on four key skill IT areas
  • Dedicated Practice Director Cate Murray

Read more about how Apex has placed project management resources at a telecommunications client below.

SCOPE
Our telecommunications client lacked the staff necessary to support multiple company initiatives within their Enterprise Project Management Office (EPO). They sought a staffing partner to assist with forecasting and quickly providing contract resources to manage their work on IT, Web, Marketing, Sales, Retail, Care, HR, Legal, and Supply Chain portfolios.

SOLUTION
To enable the EPO to meet demanding deadlines, Apex staffed the following team:

  • Six (6) Project Managers responsible for all aspects of managing large, complex projects through full lifecycle including scope, schedule, cost, and resources. This team conducts project meetings, sets and manages client expectations, and interfaces with all areas affected by the project including end users and implementation partners. Additionally, they are responsible for a $400+ million budget.
  • Nine (9) Senior Business Systems Analysts responsible for business requirement gathering and user acceptance testing. These employees plan, direct, and perform analysis of business issues to be solved with automated systems. Lastly, they act as a liaison between users and internal technology resources.
  • Two (2) Project Coordinators supporting the project management team by maintaining document control, tracking project activities, and developing and publishing communications to project shareholders.

We were able to decrease the time it took to fill each position by leveraging our proactive candidate pipeline process, providing materials, and streamlining the client’s onboarding process.

RESULT
Apex built a qualified team required to meet our client’s business initiatives within their various portfolios that cost, on average, 5% below our client’s rate card and approximately 20% less than our direct competitors. In the spirit of partnership, Apex also provided laptops and onboarding services to alleviate some of the hiring manager’s responsibilities.
